I actually did daycare for a number of years.

Everyone has their own way of comforting my dks. My dh rocks and cuddles. My Mom and sister cuddle and play music. I cuddle and nurse.

Re: Breast addict

DD is teething finally. 3 teeth in 2 weeks so I am sure that is the problem. I just feel like a pain at daycare because I am the mom that cloth diapers, I bf, and now this one has milk allergy and I have to bring in almond milk for her to drink while there. (I am soooo beyond done with pumping that we transitioned to almond milk for everybody but me.)

I am sure that this shall pass once teething is done. I really wish she would carry her around in a sling. Nanna would be surprised the amount of things you can get done with a little one tied to you.

Thanks for the advice and support.

It sounds like your DD is just hitting a new, louder stage and the DCP doesn't like it. She's going to have to deal, unfortunately. 14 months is so *little* and, on top of that, your weaning plans are no one else's business. I would argue that at just over a year, being a breastmilk addict is perfect!

I would tell her that when you wean isn't her business, ds1 will be 3 in less than a month and is still a breast addict lol 14 months is tiny and very much a baby.

DS is still a boobie junkie at almost 17mo. I haven't considered weaning him because it is most definitely a primary source of sustenance for him. He eats solids really well, but I would estimate about 40% of his nutrition still comes from Mom.

That being said, if I am not around, he doesn't get milk. He's old enough that I don't pump, but I also don't leave him for more than 8 hours (and thats only been one time). He eats other foods, drinks water or smoothie, etc. and my husband doesn't have a problem comforting him or my now 3yo DD.

I would be concerned if Nana has 14 kids at once, and is pushing you to wean because she can't soothe your little one. She is most likely tired, but Nana doesn't have time to tend to her nap schedule if her hands are that full. Yes if you were there you could calm her more easily, but it shouldn't be too difficult to distract her for that last hour until you can give her special mommy loving.

Best of luck, I can't imagine that having your CCP giving you grief makes things easy. You are doing the right thing. Hopefully she will work with you to make things easier for herself and your DD.
